    Walter Cronkite didn't have a problem with it. At least, that's what he allegedly told Jimmy Buffett who told Harrison Ford who told the story on Oprah years ago.

    Heartbreaking. A true trailblazer, and a brilliant man. I knew he was ill, didn't realize how seriously.

    I loved the earring.

    RIP, sir.

    Somehow Fox News got first dibs on interviewing Mike Wallace. The man's still a bit stunned at the rapidity of Bradley's passing, I think.

    Probably because of his boy Chris.

    I'm beginning to think Mike Wallace will out-live me.
  5. Met Ed at a Neville Brothers show a few years back.
    Extremely cool.

    Wow. Weren't we just talking about some of Bradley's great work? And I mean recent stuff, too.

    A damn fine reporter, and it's damn shame he's gone.

    Heaven's newsroom just got a great addition. RIP

    Class act ... loved it when he did segments on jazz musicians. He really knew his stuff in that regard. But could and did do anything about anybody, anywhere, with grace and skill. One of my heros.

    Not really, a few sites had done stories on his leukemia.
    That said, this industry has a gaping hole today.

    You think the fact that his son works for Fox News might have something to do with that?
